Interaction of Metal and Slag in Continuous Casting Mold


Article Preview

Knowledge of the flow field inside the mold can offer an opportunity to improve the internal cleanness of the final product. The PIV technique was employed to assess the distribution of longitudinal velocity distribution along a wide section ranging from the submerged nozzle entry to the narrow surface of a mold in a slab casting machine, as well as the distribution of transverse velocity component. This information can be used to assess the degree of interfacial turbulence and also to characterize transient phenomena in the mold.
